East Asia action begins Monday


ITFTeams of International Transport Workers’ Federation inspectors, along with dockers’ and seafarers’ union members, will begin the first East Asian maritime action week of 2015 on Monday across ports in Japan, Korea, Russia and Taiwan. The action week will run from 26th to 30th January.

The teams will check and enforce decent pay and working conditions onboard vessels.

In Japan a rally will also be held at the Kotoku Kaiun company, after the ITF said it refused to engage in dialogue with union representatives.
